I am coming back to illustration after a long break of barely doing any creative work (about 5 years) and I was hoping for some feedback on this work in progress image before I finish it off. I'm struggling to find a way to combine the two parts, and want some general feedback before I go any further and am unable to make changes as easily. The fire section will have more contrast on the final image. I also think I am working in a really old-fashioned way now - vectors in illustrator then texture in photoshop, if anyone can suggest the best way to move to a less time consuming process? If anyone has time, I'd really appreciate it!
